For Immediate Release

RE:THE ALLEGED DEFECTTION OF SOME NDC MEMBERS IN THE BUNKPURUGU CONSTITUENCY

The attention of the leadership of the NDC in the Bunkpurugu constituency has been

drawn to a publication on some social media platforms made by the member of parliament for Bunkpurugu and North East Regional minister Hon. Solomon Boar, where he sought to peddle untruths about some NDC members in the constituency (Alleged defection of some members of the NDC to the NPP).

In fact, the leadership of the party has investigated the issues surrounding the so called defections and wants to set the records straight about how the NPP deceived those members under the pretext of a town Hall meeting by the Hon.Solomon Boar which

was said to be non-political.

In fact, it will interest you to note that on that faithful day, these members were invited to at own Hall meeting at the Binde Social Center by a family member who is a member of the NPP.

The said members got to the meeting grounds only to be told that the. Minister wanted to meet them. According to the leader of the group, the minister actually met them and told them they had been identified as influential persons in the area and so he wanted them to defect from the NDC to the NPP to support him in the upcoming general elections.

He also promised them some jobs if they agreed to defect.

According to the leader of the group after the meeting they were given GHC20.00 each and they also took them some pictures.

Unfortunately for the minister and the NPP, the people said they were influenced against their will and promised not to leave the NDC party when our team met them.

We in the NDC want to state that we find the conduct of the MP and the NPP party ridiculous, mischievous and an attempt to divert the attention of the constituents from their abysmal performance and the failed campaign promises made by the minister in the constituency.

We advise the minister to only focus his campaign for re-election by his party members/delegates in their upcoming primaries as candidate once the party does not know who to lead the party in the constituency.

Therefore, we want to use this medium to assure all NDC party faithfuls and the general

public to discard and to treat the news with the greatest contempt that it deserves, and remain focus to winning the seat for Hon.Abed and JDM in the constituency.

EyɛZu, EyɛZa!!

Thank you.

Signed:

The Communication Officer

Bunkpurugu Constituency
